26. I am 21 years old and a student of college of education, but better still I always feel shy and fear to talk in the midst of people. How do I overcome this in my life?
What's the advantage of being afraid? Does the advantage appeal to you more than the disadvantage? The advantage of fear is courage. The disadvantage of fear is...fear.
25. I'm getting a weird sensation when I’m being exposed to art. It makes me panic and feel as though I can’t breathe and makes me angry and sad and confused and sometimes makes me faint, what is this? Sometimes I hallucinate when it happens too.
All art is is a mirror. In essence you are offended by what you see: you or the absence of you.
24. Why does being normal scare me?
You’ve been told all your life, “Be Extraordinary!” What does that mean? It means be popular, be wealthy, be beautiful, be a genius, be a leader etc. etc. The expectation is unrealistic for most people, all this mantra achieves is to string people along on a fruitless endeavor to achieve the impossible. By you being afraid to admit you are normal, you interrupt the programming. Just be yourself, and let other people waste their time labelling you. Just do you.
23. How do I put an end to an addiction when I feel like it’s part of me already?
You cannot achieve fulfillment through addiction; that’s impossible. Why? Addiction needs to be pursued like an ex-love. Achieving fulfillment means you lose all incentive to waste your time on a fruitless endeavour. Addiction dangles closure above you like mistletoe. You’re the asshole with puckered lips, ensconced in delusion, prostituting your pride for a temporary reprieve from reality.
“Why do you resent pain?”
22. How do you shut off your emotions? My parents always say things that get to me and tell me to grow thicker skin since I am way too 'sensitive'.
Make mistakes. How? Don’t be afraid to be embarrassed when you’re wrong. Repetition. Eventually you’ll be cool under fire.
21. How do you deal with a neurotic person?
Be honest. If they are unaware their behavior is aggravating to others the last thing they want is to be ignorant about it. If they do want to be ignorant and don’t appreciate the honesty, leave them alone.
20. Why am I not mad when people mock me?
You don’t hinge your approval on others. Mocking you is their need to relate (with other participants) experiencing together the insecurity you inspire in them. Their insecurity is clear to you, and to accept their criticism validates mockery as a go-to exercise to overcome themselves.
19. What do you call people who ignore their romantic feelings for another person and simply let them fade away?
18. My dad always rubs me into my nose how bad and ungrateful I was as a child, I feel guilty and I hate myself and I wish I could do better?
Your father is teaching you to relate to hate. Your father resents you because he couldn’t change your poor behaviour. He has to live with the memories of being a bad father. That’s what he learned from his father, and that’s what you’ll teach your son.
17. Do you have a diet that helps?
Temptation craves enthusiasm. Food triggers reflections into the past and projections into the future. There's no way to eliminate temptation (you're not supposed to). But know when your actions translate into enthusiasm, temptation is never pleased. Ask yourself, are you hungry or bored, or impatient. Is there a passion you are neglecting that has disguised itself as hunger? Be aware.
16. Why do I feel so empty?
You're full of holes. A colander is not a cup. Stop trying to fill it with water. Fill it with something that get's trapped like...croutons.
15. I just want some comfort in knowing I'm not crazy.
Accept it. The people that don't accept they are crazy are ill.
14. How do I explain to my mother that depression is more than just being sad? Without starting a fight with her.
The root of evil encourages despair to flourish because our imperfections live to aggravate others through our insecurities. This only motivates us to sink deeper into despair because it’s easier to give up and ask for pity. This cycle repeats itself.
13. Why are fearful people afraid of unknowns and want clear cut answers?
Fear trains us to obey with promise it will not manifest.
12. Can you be forced or compelled into being a good person or can genuine goodness of the heart only be voluntary?
Ask the people who benefit from the deed cares if the generosity was influenced or voluntary.
11. What exists only to mess with us?
10. What is the optimal manner in which caregivers should teach their children about what love is?
Love is transparent affection.
9. When has everyone stood up and clapped?
I am allergic to applause.
8. Why does a group of people clapping always get faster?
It's like sledding on a soccer field. You just sit there. Clapping tilts the field until is becomes a slope. If the cadence doesn't escalate, the sled will stop accelerating. I guess groups wish to escalate the thrill until it tops out. It annoys me personally.
7. What are blind spots in psychology?
Fear wields ignorance to steer your intrigue towards triggers that dissuade your curiosity from persevering.
6. Is freedom a dumb concept?
Freedom is the desire to escape oppression. It's a moving target, and it's unconcerned with who or what it impacts. I suppose if you believe there is no such thing as freedom, your escape rests on those who try in vain (for your amusement). That's your freedom.
5. Are hierarchies avoidable? Is the very existence of and ideal oppressive? Without an ideal to strive toward, how can society be ordered?
Food chain. Survival is-was our ideal. We've lost sight of that because convenience is our ideal. In a hierarchy what ideal wins? Survival or convenience? If you're starving; survival. If you're lazy; convenience. In a hierarchy what is oppression? "I'm not getting my way." In a survival situation you can't blame nature, you can only respect it. We are not nature because our ideal is convenience. Inconvenience is our oppression.
4. Is there or is there not anything objectively right or wrong that is independent of human opinion?
Look at politics. Look at how news corps stay in business purely by painting their opposition as inferior. It's a fucking racket. These rackets exist because none of us are objective.: there is only profit. What is profitable is predictable. Humans are predictable, not objective. Ask me how I know...
3. According to Freud, why do some people enjoy when something bad happens to someone?
Misfortune is misunderstood. Delight in fate's mercy.
2. How will censorship hurt writers and artists?
Censorship is despicable. If you are so ill-equipped to process incompatible thought, you choose to disable critical thinking; preferring to arrest what triggers signal within you to adapt to adversity. If that makes me an asshole (in your eyes), don't talk to me. Don't stick your head in the sand and claim you know better.
1. What is the threat of virtue?
I do not see an end to racism; regardless of who we elect. It's a bottomless stomach. We feed it virtue but...it's never satisfied. Why? The fear to offend (under the threat of virtue) makes us accountable to the mob (that fears to offend).
